Need Some Advice On A Possible Business Partnership...
OK just a few miles from home is a gas station who's previous owner used to sell BBQ and do OK with it. Well he sold the gas station and in the year or so since the big nice Southern Pride Smoker has just sat there. I spoke to the owner today about possibly doing business with him and putting his cooker to work to make us both some money. I think he doesn't use it because he doesn't have anyone that knows how to produce a good product.
My question is this. Do you think it would be better to offer him a partnership type of deal where one of us would receice a percentage of the profits depending on whether he buys the meat and I cook it, or if I do the meat purchasing and the cooking.
Or would it be better to offer my services straight up to be put on the payroll?
Never been in a situation like this one so I greatly appreciate any advice that you folks can give.
